Haircut risk?
      #178917 - 03/08/06 05:21 PM

I got my haircut recently. The barber nicked me when shaving my neck with the straight razor. I hardly felt it. What is the risk for aids or hepatitis c? I am freaking out here and worried sick. I haven't had any acute symptoms.

the only risk you have is of a staph infection not hiv or hep c, straight razors are also illegal to use in most states, where do you live? love and peace
